Is the 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid a Good Used Car?

Used 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid Performance and Interior

The 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid has a four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor, which together produce 200 horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. The Camry Hybrid has smooth power delivery and decent overall acceleration. While certainly not sporty, steering is poised and balanced, and the car rides smoothly over bumps in the road. The regenerative brakes can feel a bit grabby, which is normal for a hybrid vehicle.

The Camry Hybrid gets great fuel economy. According to the EPA, you can expect 42 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway with the base trim. You’ll get slightly lower estimates if you choose the top XLE trim.

Is the 2013 Camry Hybrid the Best Model Year to Buy?

The Toyota Camry Hybrid was fully redesigned for 2012. A new generation was introduced in 2018. Though you could probably save money by shopping for a 2012 model, it will lack a standard infotainment screen. The 2014 model will likely cost more, but it boasts an upgraded navigation system and a standard rearview camera in late-model editions.

Which Used Toyota Camry Hybrid Is Right for Me?

The 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid is available in LE and XLE trims. The base model comes decently equipped, with features like proximity key entry, push-button start, Bluetooth, and a touch-screen infotainment system. Stepping up to the XLE nets you a few upgrades, including alloy wheels and a power driver's seat. It’s also the only trim that may be equipped with satellite radio, navigation, a rearview camera, and a larger touch screen.

Though the Camry Hybrid has great reliability, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Toyota provides a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty on all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, and it extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. Each CPO Toyota vehicle must pass a 160-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read the Toyota warranty page carefully.

2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2013 Toyota Prius?

If you're looking for a fuel-efficient Toyota, the 2013 Prius should be on your list. It gets better mileage than most other hybrids, including the Camry. A top reliability score and great safety ratings also make the Prius one of the best used compact cars you can buy. When the 2013 Prius was new, we named it our 2013 Best Hatchback for Families for its ample passenger and cargo room, and its high-quality, family-friendly features. 

Which Is Better: 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid?

The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid is a sportier car and one of the most fun-to-drive hybrids available. It boasts solid crash test ratings, a quality interior, and comfortable seating accommodations. You can find a Fusion Hybrid with driver assistance features like lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. Because of its combination of quality, value, features, and space, we named the Fusion Hybrid our 2013 Best Hybrid Car for the Money and 2013 Best Hybrid Car for Families. One downside to the Fusion is its worst-in-class reliability score.

Which Is Better: 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid or 2013 Toyota Camry?

Choosing between the 2013 Toyota Camry and its hybrid counterpart will likely come down to how you balance the cost of the car versus the fuel savings you can expect with the hybrid. You could save as much as $550 per year in gas by going with the hybrid Camry, according to the EPA. Still, the regular Camry has a wider range of average prices, so you may be able to pick one up for less.
